Cheesecake Snickers Salad

I'd never hear of snickers #salad, but once I had it I knew it was no ordinary salad. And now there's a suped up cheesecake version!

I live in a hole. Or, I did. Seriously, there are so many recipes that everyone seems to know about but I am just discovering. Like remember the whole funeral potatoes business? Yup, I had never heard of those before moving to Utah. And other day Rachel from introduced me to frito pie. Which I still need someone to just send me a perfect recipe for so I can try it. And then there’s snickers salad. SAY WHAT? Yup, it’s a real thing though I’m pretty sure it’s more dessert than salad. My cute cousin, Amber made it once and while I could of sworn there were also cookies her recipe definitely doesn’t call for it. So, I’ll post the real recipe later, but it made me want to experiment with an extreme cheesecake snickers salad version.

I'd never hear of snickers #salad, but once I had it I knew it was no ordinary salad. And now there's a suped up cheesecake version!

This “snickers salad” really did get a tad out of hand. At first I thought she had those fudge stripes cookies in it for some reason so then even when she told me that there definitely weren’t cookies I couldn’t get it out of my head, so in went the cookies. And then I thought, oh I’ve got that cheesecake pudding in the cabinet that needs to be used, so in went the cheesecake pudding. It’s so creamy!

I'd never hear of snickers #salad, but once I had it I knew it was no ordinary salad. And now there's a suped up cheesecake version!

So here’s the superstar list, bananas, apples for crunch, snickers candy bars for caramel chocolatey goodness (seriously, just wait until you get a nugget of candy bar in your bite. It’s delicious.) Keebler Fudge Stripes cookies, whipped cream and cheesecake pudding all stirred into one delicious “salad”. The kids loved it. I loved it. And you all are for sure going to love it.

Can You Make Whipped Cream With Half and Half?

You can not make whipped cream with half and half.

Half and half doesn’t have the fat content necessary.

What Can You Substitute For Whipped Cream?

Mix 1/3 cup softened butter with 3/4 cup milk for a whipping cream substitute.

This works as a substitute for heavy whipping cream in recipes.

It will not work for whipped cream topping.

Does Cheesecake Need to be Baked?

A no-bake cheesecake does not contain eggs and flour, that is why it does not need to be baked.

A no-bake cheesecake still has the rich and tangy flavor of cream cheese, and it is still smooth and creamy.

  • I must also be behind the loop, because I’ve never heard of snickers salad. When I first saw the name come up in my feedly before the pictures came up I was genuinely confused! Ha! I could seriously get down with some of that. Wowza.
